- Use any brand test kits
- Preprogrammed for 150 water test methods
- Long life, outstanding durability
Dedicated to Water Analysis
The Cecil AquaQuest water quality test spectrophotometer has been specially designed to cover the complete requirements of water analysis spectrophotometers. Both visible range and UV/visible range instruments are offered, each with or without an integral printer for convenient presentation of results, without the extra space required by an external printer.
Fast and Easy to Operate
Choosing a water quality test method complete with the appropriate sample pathlength could not be simpler. It takes only about 15 seconds to select the method and get the instrument set up and ready for measurement. Quick change sample holders each accommodating more than one sample pathlength add to convenience and speed up operation.
Cecil spectrophotometers are well known for their durability. The lamp is the most expensive consumable part on a spectrophotometer. A Cecil lamp will last for over 3 years, in contrast to a typical spectrophotometer whose lamps need changing multiple times per year. Over the life of the Cecil instrument this can amount to significant cost savings. Cecil takes pride in the lowest instrument maintenance costs in the industry.
Use with Any Brand Test Kit
AquaQuest can be used with any manufacturer’s water quality test kits. Save money by avoiding a spectrophotometer that locks you into expensive consumable contracts.
Exceptional Optical Performance and Stability
Superb performance is the result of the excellent specifications of the AquaQuest. Exceptionally high stability, low stray light, low noise and high wavelength-setting precision ensure that reliable and accurate measurements may be made to 3 Absorbance units.
Whatever special needs your laboratory may have, the AquaQuest spectrophotometer offers the flexibility, power and performance required. Wavelength scanning, cell programming, batch sampling, wavelength programming, time course plotting and reaction kinetics are all available.
All instruments are completely programmed for approximately 150 water quality test methods based on the proven range of Merck 'Spectroquant' test kits. Users may also develop their own methods and calibrations to be stored in security-protected memory for instant recall and use at any time.
Cecil will set up the analyzer so that at start-up it will go immediately to the wavelength of interest. There is no charge for this customization, a real convenience to those who use only one or two methods.
Cecil offers a complete range of sampling accessories. All instruments are fitted as standard with a special dual sample holder designed to accommodate both 10mm rectangular cuvettes and 16mm reaction tubes as supplied with many Merck test kits; no need to change holder when switching between the two. Sample holders take only seconds to change without the use of any tool. More advance sampling options include the sipette system, automatic cell changers, and batch sampling. For a more extensive description of sampling options request a brochure.
Vaccine Potency Compromised by Refrigeration Problems
A July 18 news item reported that in Connecticut the potency of 5,000 doses of vaccines was compromised due to vaccine refrigerator temperature excursions above levels recommended by the manufacturers. Mechanical failure of vaccine refrigerators and human failure to identify temperature excursions were blamed for the event. The report noted that compromised vaccines posed no
Determining Hydrated Lime Moisture Content
Hydrated lime, also called slaked lime, is a calcium hydroxide Ca(OH)2 produced when quicklime is mixed (slaked) with water. Hydrated lime has multiple uses including building materials, civil engineering, the chemical industry, agriculture, drinking water treatment and sewage treatment. Although produced by slaking quicklime with water the moisture content of the finished product is subject
Use Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaners for Heavy Parts Degreasing
Heavy parts degreasing of engine and machinery components can be accomplished quickly and effectively by cavitation action in industrial ultrasonic cleaners. In addition to speed and efficiency sonic cleaning engine parts and machinery parts is far more environmentally friendly than time-consuming scrubbing and brushing in a solvent parts washer with its associated solvent disposal problems.
Update on CDC Vaccine Refrigeration Recommendations
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has updated its toolkit for vaccine storage and management incorporating revised recommendations for vaccine refrigeration equipment to better support the vaccine cold chain. The “cold chain” represents the correct temperatures for storage and handling vaccines from the time of manufacture to the point where they are administered to
Vaccine Refrigeration Crucial as Immunization Costs Increase
The prices charged by pharmaceutical companies for essential vaccines are rapidly escalating according to recent press accounts. Increasing immunization costs not only put strains on the vaccines for children program but also on an entire range of immunization programs. For example, a pediatrician in Texas reported that the vaccines in her refrigerator cost $70,000, which
